This post comes from Melissa, a librarian here at Brooklyn Public Library.
Back when BPL started creating short videos to demonstrate some of the resources we provide, we started by showing ProQuest's New York Times database. Almost immediately after we published the video and related blog post, ProQuest changed the interface so that things looked completely different (though the basic functioning of the database was the same).
Crossing off a couple of items on our to-do list, we bring you an updated video that shows how you can search back and current issues of the New York Times newspaper, Book Review and magazine from any computer with internet access, as long as you have a BPL card.
Even better, we've created a new video for ProQuest's Historical Newspapers: The New York Times database, which goes back to the paper's founding in 1851 and provides PDF versions of all documents.
This database is available only at Central Library. For middle-of-the-night cravings for 19th century newspaper articles, don't forget that you can always get your fill from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle Online.
